Katie & Mark August 15th 2014

This is a long testimonial from a lovely couple but I could not shorten it down as it tells you all about Katie and Mark’s journey from start to finish as they worked with Elite Tents.

“We knew from the outset that we wanted our wedding to have a rustic twist and having exhausted local venues we started looking into marquees. We knew we didn’t want any old bog standard white marquee and were delighted when we discovered Elite Tent’s Tipis.

I viewed the tipis without my husband to be on a dreary rainy day in March, but even in these conditions I knew immediately that they were perfect for us! I was greeted by a toasty fire and a hot chocolate and Jaquie and her team made me feel incredibly welcome.

The Tipis presented a wonderful option for us, with flexibility around capacity and location and I just knew that my guests would get the same “Wow” I had when I saw the tipis for the first time.

A few days before the wedding, Richard and a team of guys appeared on site, right on time and promptly got to work, by 15:00 the tipis were up and looked fantastic! They were just as we hoped and gave us the perfect venue for our reception.

As predicted, the “Wow!” reactions started rolling in, we had our glass and crockery delivered, the delivery man was so impressed he had to take some photos as he said he’d never seen anything like them before!! The bar staff were much the same, and my bridesmaids, and our families…. you get the idea!!

On the day, the Tipis were perfect, a wonderful mix of rustic charm and comfort, the fire pit gently crackled away keeping us cosy whilst the guests had their dinner before they all made very good use of the dance floor! I couldn’t imagine having had any other venue for our wedding reception.

After the wedding day was over, the tipis were dismantled with just the same care and attention as when they had gone up with no damage left to the site leaving only wonderful memories that we will look back on for years to come. We can’t thank and recommend the Elite tents team enough for their wonderful service from the very first day I saw the tipis, to our wedding day and beyond. They truly helped us create a memorable day which we will never forget.”
